The Sons of Liberty

The Sons of Liberty was a secret organization of American Patriots which originated in the Thirteen Colonies during the American Revolution. British authorities and their supporters known as Loyalists considered the Sons of Liberty as seditious rebels, referring to them as "Sons of Violence" and "Sons of Iniquity." Patriots attacked the apparatus and symbols of British authority and power such as property of the gentry, Customs officers, East India Company tea, and as the war approached, vocal supporters of the Crown.

It would seem to me that we as a nation have reached a crossroads, a tipping point of sorts. Where one political faction has begun to impose its own world view upon the rest of the nation without regard for the vision of the founding fathers, with tangible contempt for the constitution and the liberties and protections it provides.

Its clear that it is us "we the people" who are to blame for their rise in power, we have allowed multiculturalism, and political correctness to run rampant and tolerated illegal immigration and have turned a blind eye to political and fiscal irresponsibility while the hollywood liberal elite push their agenda and poison the minds of the young. We have seen the election of the Nations first Black President and for that I am truly proud of my country, I never thought I would see the day, I would be elated if the man were qualified for the position, if he had not sat in a racist church for 20 years and if he had not associated with unrepentant domestic terrorists. If he in fact would have been challenged by the media and been forced to answer the questions we all have about him and his policies like any other candidate. Sadly that never happened and we are we are. So what does a Patriot do when the Government he thought was "For the people by the people" has morphed into something neither the founding fathers or our grandparents would recognize, its a question I shall seek to answer in the coming days and months...

Your patriotism is a fracking illusion I'm affraid. You're just filled with preconceptions - cliches if you will - about the world you live in.

First, why do you possibly think the election of a democrat government, or any of the actions they plan to do, means direspect towards what the "founding fathers" (lol @ that expression, sorry..) created. These guys are probably just as patriotic as you are, sorry.. If you think wild economic liberalism is part of the american constitution, maybe you should actually read it some day.

Anyway I'm just talking about economic views here (because I think that is what you feel concerned about?).. Nowadays world economy is such a little matter.
The modern world, and it's survival, are all about the ecological crisis. It's not about the economical crisis, or the small conflicts and tensions between countries in some parts of the world, or the existence of a few countries with distastrous dictatures, or the 3rd world countries where hunger kills thousands, or terrorism.. All these are things that matter, but they pale, they really pale, in comparison to the necessity, the urge, world wide, to have an energetic ecological action.
It's almost amusing that you've been fan of a TV serie narrating a situation where the human race is facing threats of extinction and fighting against it, and to see that you preoccupy yourself so deeply with your little country and its politics, your little economy, and not the things that really matter to the future of humanity on Earth.
If you want to devote your energy to a meaningful cause (be it a mere "blog writing" energy), something that an intelligent&brave man would devote his energy to, then chose the preservation of our planet.

You arent from the States I take it, Therefore I respectfully say to you, Fuck you and whatever pathetic little patch of dirt you reside upon.

VIPER1, I and so many others feel so much the same way!
It is NOT getting any better the farther we slide down this slippery slope, either!

Cashane, may I echo the sentiments of Viper1. Your mind is so pitifully small and narrow that I question its' ability to grasp the essence of his due farewell to you. Imbecile.

Viper1... I just found your blog again and it led me here. I am confident you are heartened by the resurgence of Conservative voice, as I am. I also experienced a true lull in my enthusiasm and belief that there were any true Americans remaining within our borders.

But alas, there are.

You, Sir, are needed. Please consider speaking out again, as you so eloquently did in the past. You are always welcome... and missed.

Very best to you...

You are not alone Viper.
@Cashane~ I echo Viper's sentiment. We are a proud people, proud to be self-reliant, responsible individuals and we don't need the world tlling us how to live our lives. We will not be slaves or subjects. We are citizens of the greatest country on earth. So stick that in your crackpipe and smoke it.
